Galileo was born in 2001, the year I went to get him from a local farmer.
His mother had died while giving birth to him and the farmer called me.
He said that Galileo was too thin to be butchered and that he had neither the time nor desire to raise him.
It was like having a baby. I bottle fed him every three hours even during the night.
When he was two they offered my 600 euros for him. He was at the age when donkey meat is highly prized for goulash.
Today Gali livs with Palmira, Betty the goats, four hens.
He loves children and is always happy when the grammar school children come visit. He loves to be petted!
Galileo's gentleness gladdens many children and he's better than any watchdog: when someone arrives at the Shelter he always lets me know.
